Born in Germany, Alfred Bernheim studied photography in Weimar and applied art in Pforzheim. In 1933 he opened a studio in Berlin. Following the rise of the Nazi party to power in 1934, he immigrated to Jerusalem. He set up a photography lab in his home and was commissioned by various institutions, such as the Bezalel Academy and the Hebrew University. Most of Bernheim’s work focused on creating portraits and architectural photographs. He also engaged in commercial photography in the style of the “new photography”.
